Last Train of  the Season

    Its now late in the Summer of 1949  and Railway Mail Service is nearly at an end on the O&W, with only the route  to Roscoe (RK) still under postal service contract; -- and will soon end. Here,  the FT diesels are in the process of turning the train on the Roscoe wye. Having  just backed off, the engines and the Osgood Bradley Baggage-Mail car #172, the  only one of three identical cars to wear the diesel scheme inspired gray-yellow  trimmed paint are backing down on the rest of the train. At this late date only  a handful of leased NYC coaches are needed to cover the patronage. This HO scale  image was made by Bill Schneider on his layout, which depicts the O&W route  from Livingston Manor to Roscoe in remarkable and uncanny detail and accuracy. 

We carry custom O&W Models, including N.Y.O. & W. Ry. FT A & B Locomotive Sets, N.Y.O.& W. F-3 A Units and A & B Sets, Parlor Cars, Baggage Cars, 50 Ton GLa Hoppers,

O&W Brass Models


Rich Yoder imports O scale brass models from Korea. He is 
currently working on the GE 44 tonner phase 1C which the O&W had five  of. These
will be available in two and three rail. The photo above shows  the two
rail version painted in the O&W maroon scheme. The three rail  model will
negotiate O27 curves. The locos will be offered painted and  unpainted.
Al Seebach of the O&WCS has two phase 1C in two rail and he is very happy with the
 way  they run. Below is a link to Rich Yoder's website.
